why so hot now, when the pattern had been so tame back in much of June?
One factor is the weakening of El Niño. it tried coming back a few days ago, but has fallen off again
This along with much lower global angular momentum is allowing the pattern to take on more of a La Niña-ish look
hence a hotter outcome
